estelle getty (sophia petrillo)

i was saddened this afternoon to read that estelle getty had died. she played one of my favorite tv characters, sophia on "golden girls."

like most of us, i grew up watching that show and often catch myself watching it on lifetime while falling asleep at night. RIP estelle.


two examples of sophia's wit:
Dorothy: MA, WOULD YOU PLEASE STOP THAT!
Sophia: These are FRITOS, Dorothy. What do you want me to do, swallow them whole?

Dorothy: We're here to pay for a funeral.
Mr. Pfeiffer: Oh, isn't that nice, the three of you planning ahead for mother.
Sophia: [walks a little bit closer] Hey Puh-feiffer, how would you like a punch in your puh-face?
